with obama as president and the democrats in the senate to even get votes on good ideas. in other words, we're now finally getting the democrats in the senate to write a budget which for 1418 days, four years, they never wrote a budget. how do you campaign against democrats in the senate if they don't even write down what they're for? so there are differences in how you structure. i think there's a lot to be learned from republican successes with governors like walker in wisconsin who made dramatic changes on the cost of government, government-run pensions, the unionized government work force and bobby jindal with school choice. he's planning this year to abolish the corporate and individual income tax, moving in a very different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines
to that, barack obama is a pretty momable guy when it come dollars basketball. >> having grown up in hawaii myself, played high school basketball two years behind him, he lives and eats and sleeps hoops still. and he loves t he knows his basketball. i just think he took a little less time on this pool than he did other ones. >> sigh, republicans, that's a good thing. >> who do you have for your elite final four? >> i like tom izzo. he could get us to the elite eight. i don't know if this michigan state team is up for to, but i wouldn't be surprised to see a michigan state/indiana final. and i do like the hoosiers winning it all. >> i'll have you know i scored six points when i played with the big boys on the ymca. >> you combine for 44 with the best guy, and you had two. >> me and lebron did a heck of a job. >> before we go, i want to get your reaction to this viral video of a basketball fan who ras reluctant to share his ice cream with his sweetie pie. let's take a look at this. >> that's just wrong. >> eventually he gave it up. but what are your thoughts on this, man? come on. t
, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that actually balances the budget. let's be clear, the democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget i think were out of step of where the american people are. the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. i didn't come here for a fancy title or big office. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream that i had, not some mountain of debt. that's why republicans are standing with the american people and working to balance he federal budget. >> there's been talk about these budgets here and budgets aren't binding. do you think that budgets cause -- budget process that they are essentially political weapons -- j
obama. how often does he play basketball and golf. i wish i had that kind of time. he is lazy but the media won't report that. i didn't come up with that obama said that to barbara walters. cnn embarrassed herself by trying to spin that has a racist comment that the words were echoing the president's own words. many in the liberal media reacted as expected but as the author points out they are not so liberal when it comes to accepting points of view. >> why is it the cultural left, you know, he drives them crazy. >> well, i don't know. i think he doesn't drive me crazy. it's more of a question how much tolerance people have for other points of view. roger is so direct and can be abrasive a and at times he is intentionally abrasive. he likes to pull people's chains. he told me a couple of times, i'm not a pudger but i'm a countered puncher. that certainly the way he sees himself, under assault by the cultural elite. when people fight back, they are controversial and roger is tough fighter. >> jon: he did build fox news channel into number one. tough being on top. everybody is t
obama. and then trying to help broker that turkish/israeli agreement to restart their relations. and then, of course, his trip to jordan and then the unannounced secret trip to baghdad only yesterday, where he was really chiding and warning prime minister maliki that he has to do something to stop those iranian overflights, rearming syria. so this has been a pretty busy trip, a late-night dinner they have not announced last night with the very powerful head of the army, the army chief of staff, cayenny from pakistan in eamon of all things. he's not going to pakistan on this trip and usually secretaries of state go to both pakistan and afghanistan. but he's not going to pakistan, because they are in a political transition, and it just could not be worked out. so there has been a lot on his plate. but right now, front and center is president karzai. chris? >> thanks, andrea. >>> next, a big week ahead for same-sex marriage. as the supreme court takes up two cases that could be a game-changer for millions of gay and lesbian couples nationwide. we'll break down what's at stake. >>>
no it doesn't because the obama administration has relied on a policy known as signature strikes where people are targeted in certain regions of pakistan or yemen based on where they live and if they're military age males. so what we've seen and these are escalating is that people are being killed by the u.s. government and they don't even know their identity. what i've seen in my reporting on the ground in somalia, yemen, and elsewhere is we'll have tremendous blowback from this if we don't take a serious step back and look at the impact on the ground of the drone strikes. >> how about that? you've written about whether in pakistan these drone strikes create more terrorists than they kill as jeremy argued. >> well, what we actually look at is public opinion. what is interesting, everyone knows pakistanis tend to dislike the drones in the major cities. what we don't actually know is what pakistanis think about the drones in the tribal areas. in my own travels on pakistan i find that people, the closer they are to the drones the less willing they are to say they hate them. in part because they
's begin in jordan. there president obama meets with king abdullah as the president winds up his trip to the middle east. >> the two leaders are scheduled to hold a news conference, actually that's meant to take place pretty soon. we'll be listening in of course and update you on the latest developments. out of jordan of course an important strategic ally for the u.s. and partner in the region. >> israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu today apologized to turkey for a 2010 commando raid on a flotilla bound for gaza. eight turks were killed in that attack. >> the israeli leader apparently phoned the turkish prime minister during a meeting with president obama. this is a pretty significant development. it comes from two senior administration officials. prime minister netanyahu apologizing for what happened and admitting to operational mistakes, apparently relations are going to be normalized now. >>> in egypt hundreds of protesters demonstrated outside cairo headquarters of the muslim brotherhood today. they through molotov cocktails as police surrounded the building. >> state-run ni

exercise. one of the pilots was killed. four other people were injured. >> barack obama was in israel for his first official visit. he also visited the occupied territories. not everyone in the west bank was pleased to see him. he had strong words of support for the palestinian cause when he gave a speech to young israelis in jerusalem. thatraelis must recognize continued settlement activity is counterproductive to the cause of peace, and an independent palestine must be viable with real borders that have to be drawn. put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. it is not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of their own. living their entire lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements, not just of theirs young people but their parents and grandparents everyday. >> obama also made clear that america's alliance with israel is eternal. many palestinians were disappointed that despite those words, he did not demand that israel stop building settlements. peace between israelis and palestinians look as far off as ever. durin
hamid karzai. it was his sixth time in afghanistan since president obama took office. his first as secretary of state. it comes at a krur time as the u.s. brings troops home turning more and more responsibility for security to the afghan government. chief washington correspondent james rosen joins me live now. james, bring us up to date. >> reporter: good morning. every leader between u.s. leaders and hamid karzai seems to be fraught with tension and this one is no different. aides say secretary kerry's talks will not dwell on the karzai's allegations that the u.s. and taliban are conspiring to weaken the afghan nation. rather they will discuss security concerns as the u.s. and nato mission in afghanistan winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and
. >> switching gears a milestone for the health care overhaul. president obama signed into law three years ago today. controversy over the giant piece of legislation has just not gone away. americans are still trying to figure out all the fine print and what it will cost them. on top of this, there are new signs the political fight over it could be heating up again. molly henneberg is live in washington with more. hi, molly. >> hi. just this week, republicans and democrats on capitol hill voted to repeal an unpopular obamacare tax, the medical device tax on everything from latex gloves to wheelchairs to dentsal instruments. but health insurance industry advocates warn more taxes from this law are coming down the pike. >> the reform law includes a new $100 billion tax in health insurance that starts next year. 2014 will be $8 billion. that's going to mean an average will pay $100 more on a premium as a result of this tax alone. small businesses will pay over $350 for each family they provide coverage for. >> president obama said in a statement today that obamacare is already saving seniors mone
